We left my mom & dad's house around 4:00 pm on Christmas Eve so that we could make it home in time for Addy & Alex to open their Christmas presents from us.
Alex insisted on changing into his new Thomas the Train dress up clothes before opening his presents.
But Addy was ready to dig in!
Once all the presents had been opened, we let the kids play for a little while (and by play I mean make a giant mess)
& then it was time for bed so that Santa Claus could come.
Santa had a very specific request from Addy. She wanted a pink polka dotted elephant, just like the one on Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Well, Santa had a hard time finding a pink polka dotted elephant, but luckily his little elves were able to make one!
Addy woke up first on Christmas morning.
Then she went & woke Alex up so he could see what Santa brought.
All Alex wanted Santa to bring him was a big brown car that he could drive on the street. Santa couldn't find a brown one, but he did find this awesome red one & Alex loves it!
Santa also brought the kids this giant triceratops that growls & roars.
As soon as it was light enough, we went outside & let Alex ride around in his new car.
And Addy ride her scooter.
"Hop in Addy, I'll give you a ride!"
I think Santa did good!
